Apocalypse Frame - ATC BASH

Hey folks!! Hope you're enjoying our ATC Bash so far. There is so much diversity on our team, I thought it would be a great way for everyone to showcase their talents and styles in a similar way. It also poses quite the challenge to work on such a small scale. 


So far you've seen Mary's and Glenda's. Today it's DeeDee here and I bring you my own ATC:


My ATC base is an index card covered in drywall tape and metal tape. The two have been layered over each other and stacked up. I used various tools like a pen, clay tools and an embossing stick to create faux rivets, staples and other textures. 




You can see the textures really well in this photo. I then completely covered the metal tape with Distress Paint in Black soot. Using a dry paper towel I buffed the paint off until it was left only in crevices and as a small covering on the raised surfaces. The chipboard film reel you see on top is a sneak peek at a piece coming up from UmWowStudio. It has been covered in Amazing Clear Cast resin from Amazing Creative Products.




My Man in Gas Mask has been stamped on a piece of 7 Dots Studio paper in Archival Ink by Ranger and adhered to the underside of the resin film reel with Heavy Gel Medium. I then put the two pieces together with fixative and adhered a couple of faux screw tops to the corners.

Join us over the next two weeks to see more ATCs and wonderful uses for our rubber stamps.

creepy perfection (I can't help but think of the Dr. Who "are you my mummy" episode when I see a gas mask, which is why it creeps me out--ha!)
